Control valves are subject to a number of common problems. This section is dedicated to an exploration of the more common control valve problems, and potential remedies. Control valves are mechanical devices with moving parts, and as such they are subject to friction , primarily between the valve stem and the stem packing. In physics, friction is classified as either static or dynamic.
12 steps to troubleshooting pneumatic systems
A control valve is a valve used to control fluid flow by varying the size of the flow passage as directed by a signal from a controller. In automatic control terminology, a control valve is termed a "final control element". The opening or closing of automatic control valves is usually done by electrical , hydraulic or pneumatic actuators. Normally with a modulating valve, which can be set to any position between fully open and fully closed, valve positioners are used to ensure the valve attains the desired degree of opening.
Air-actuated valves are commonly used because of their simplicity, as they only require a compressed air supply, whereas electrically-operated valves require additional cabling and switch gear, and hydraulically-actuated valves required high pressure supply and return lines for the hydraulic fluid.
The pneumatic control signals are traditionally based on a pressure range of psi 0. Electrical control now often includes a "Smart" communication signal superimposed on the mA control current, such that the health and verification of the valve position can be signalled back to the controller. An automatic control valve consists of three main parts in which each part exist in several types and designs:. The modes of failure operation are requirements of the failure to safety process control specification of the plant.
In the case of cooling water it may be to fail open, and the case of delivering a chemical it may be to fail closed. The fundamental function of a positioner is to deliver pressurized air to the valve actuator, such that the position of the valve stem or shaft corresponds to the set point from the control system. Positioners are typically used when a valve requires throttling action.
A positioner requires position feedback from the valve stem or shaft and delivers pneumatic pressure to the actuator to open and close the valve.
The positioner must be mounted on or near the control valve assembly. There are three main categories of positioners, depending on the type of control signal, the diagnostic capability, and the communication protocol: pneumatic analog and digital.
Processing units may use pneumatic pressure signaling as the control set point to the control valves. Pressure is typically modulated between In a common pneumatic positioner the position of the valve stem or shaft is compared with the position of a bellows that receives the pneumatic control signal. When the input signal increases, the bellows expands and moves a beam. The beam pivots about an input axis, which moves a flapper closer to the nozzle.
The nozzle pressure increases, which increases the output pressure to the actuator through a pneumatic amplifier relay. The increased output pressure to the actuator causes the valve stem to move. Stem movement is fed back to the beam by means of a cam.
As the cam rotates, the beam pivots about the feedback axis to move the flapper slightly away from the nozzle. The nozzle pressure decreases and reduces the output pressure to the actuator. Stem movement continues, backing the flapper away from the nozzle until equilibrium is reached. When the input signal decreases, the bellows contracts aided by an internal range spring and the beam pivots about the input axis to move the flapper away from the nozzle.
Nozzle decreases and the relay permits the release of diaphragm casing pressure to the atmosphere, which allows the actuator stem to move upward. Through the cam, stem movement is fed back to the beam to reposition the flapper closer to the nozzle. When equilibrium conditions are obtained, stem movement stops and the flapper is positioned to prevent any further decrease in actuator pressure. Most modern processing units use a 4 to 20 mA DC signal to modulate the control valves.
The pneumatic output signal provides the input signal to the pneumatic positioner. Otherwise, the design is the same as the pneumatic positioner .
This type of positioner is a microprocessor-based instrument. The microprocessor enables diagnostics and two-way communication to simplify setup and troubleshooting. The microprocessor performs the position control algorithm rather than a mechanical beam, cam, and flapper assembly.
This pressure is routed to a pneumatic amplifier relay and provides two output pressures to the actuator. With increasing control signal, one output pressure always increases and the other output pressure decreases. Double-acting actuators use both outputs, whereas single-acting actuators use only one output. The changing output pressure causes the actuator stem or shaft to move. Valve position is fed back to the microprocessor. The stem continues to move until the correct position is attained.
In addition to the function of controlling the position of the valve, a digital valve controller has two additional capabilities: diagnostics and two-way digital communication. Automatic calibration and configuration of positioner.
Real time diagnostics. Reduced cost of loop commissioning, including installation and calibration. Use of diagnostics to maintain loop performance levels. Improved process control accuracy that reduces process variability. These valve are characterised with lower recovery coefficient. Examples of high recovery valve - butterfly valve, ball valve, plug valve, gate valve etc. These valve are characterised with higher recovery coefficient.
Example of low recovery valve - globe valve, angle valve. Examples - turbine bypass valve, process steam letdown station etc. Typically the actuator could be spring diaphragm type, piston cylinder type or piston-spring type - Hydraulic valve - The valve actuated by non-compressible medium like water or oil - Electric valve - The valve actuated by electric motor.
A huge variety of valve types and control operation exist. However, there are two main forms of action; the sliding stem and the rotary action. The most common and versatile types of control valves are sliding-stem globe, V-notch ball, butterfly and angle types. Their popularity derives from rugged construction and the many options available that make them suitable for a variety of process applications. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

As a service technician, you spend time diagnosing and troubleshooting problems and making repairs on all kinds of equipment and infrastructure. You need tools that perform in any situation. Get answers to frequently asked questions about service truck and tool performance — to ensure you always have the power to get the job done. A: Most pneumatic tools are rated at 90 psi. Increasing psi in an effort to get more power can put too much pressure into the tool, and it will eventually damage the tool by overworking the seals, bushings and mechanisms inside. A: Tools that lack torque or that stall under a significant load are common problems for many techs. The source of these issues is often a lack of maintenance or poor condition of supply components such as filters, regulators, lubricators, connections, hoses and fittings.

Tsao, S. September 1, September ; 36 3 : — This paper investigates the mathematical problem of fluid flow at a junction. It is shown that the junction pressure at a given time can be expressed approximately in terms of the known pressures and flow rates at and near the junction at an earlier time. After the junction pressure is determined, it serves as a boundary condition for all the transmission lines meeting at the junction. Several junction networks are computed for illustrative purposes.
